Today I got elected Administrative Vice President of the stay-at-home moms' group I belong to. I worked really hard to run a vicious, underhanded, mud-slinging campaign, which wasn't easy, considering I ran unopposed. Actually, everyone who ran for office ran unopposed, but we still had to hold the election, according to our rules. I guess I never did hear what the official result was, because as the meeting wound down, WCK took off for the exit screaming, "Bye bye!" and we had to go. I need to teach her to have more respect for the democratic process. Maybe after potty training.
Anyway, I'm just going to assume that I won. What does my new position mean? Mainly, if the president of the stay-at-home moms' group falls off a cliff or something, then I'll be the most powerful stay-at-home mom in the local neighborhoods west of Highway 169. Also, I have to plan the group's service projects. Of course, I'm thinking some kind of bone-marrow, blood-drive thing, but if you have any ideas of projects that would be good for moms and kids to do, let me know.
Speaking of bone marrow, my brother-in-law, who joined the National Marrow Donor Registry last fall, got a call that he might be a potential donor for someone. He has to have some more blood tests to find out. They told him he only has a 10 percent chance of matching and that it could be a couple months before they let him know. Still, I think this is really exciting news. It just goes to show that if you sign up, you really could get the call to help someone.
Anyway. Now I'm going to go sit around and feel powerful.
